Re: What OC can I expect with my new q6600 G0 + setup?
Q6600 at 3.6 on a P5k Deluxe. Easiest overclock ever !
I go right for the jugular when I overclock so I dont prime and orthos for 12 hours to test stability I play games ! So far hours of Bioshock, Dirt and Quake Wars have yeilded no issues so I say its stable !

Make sure you read the great "p5k addon guide" that is on the net. Just search for it and it will tell you what you need to do. Right off the bat I would go for 3.4 and work up from there. I build boxes at work on a regular basis with the same hardware and after about 10 of them I have not had one single issue with hitting 3.4 right out of the gate. I just give it a small vcore bump to 1.4 and go from there. I used zalman 9700's on the work boxes too.
I do I.T at an architectural firm so we have to have powerful boxes in case anyone is wondering why I would populate an office with powerhouse gaming boxes !
And we have to have our lan games of Fear during lunch ya know... hehe
